Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 11, 1971):
Completed in 1845, this was the first building put up especially for the Medical College of Virginia, and remains the oldest medical college building in the South. An exotic edifice, it is considered by many to be the finest Egyptian Revival building in the country.

The Egyptian Building is in very good condition.

The exterior was repainted last year, and it is in overall "good health."
